Tele-education network to connect govt med colleges

Chennai: Special guest lectures, rare surgeries and discussions that happen at the government general hospital will now be heard and seen by the government-run medical colleges across the state.

    Making it possible is the tele-education link between the 14 medical colleges, which was inaugurated by the health minister MRK Panneerselvam. "Many medical students long to join the Madras Medical College. I am glad they will now be a part of exciting things that happen in this 175-year-old institution. Students and faculty here (MMC) can also share the rare surgeries done by other colleges," he said.

    The operation theatres in the MMC have been fitted with cameras to enable transmission to other medical colleges. "The scope for this phenomenal," says surgical gastroenterologist Dr SM Chandramohan, who is the nodal officer for the tele-medicine and education project. "We can bring in more innovation into education with technology," he said.

    Besides education, the health department is planning to offer the tele-medicine facility by linking all the headquarters hospitals. This would help doctors at MMC, Stanley, Madurai or Kilpauk offer their expertise to patients in Ooty or Krishnagiri, he adds. "Already the pilot project in Royapetah Government Hospital, which was linked to six other peripheral hospitals, has been showing good results," Dr Chandramohan said. Health secretary VK Subburaj said the super specialists at city colleges would now offer their consultations over the tele-medicine link.
